Zoe Ballering is in the midst of completing her MFA at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington. She's currently working on her thesis, a collection of short stories of speculative fiction dealing with themes of pain, grief, and the body—and naked mole rats, which is of course what she so kindly gave us for NUNUM's Summer 2018 issue.
Tracy Pitts is a film photographer in Oregon. His photography has appeared in the Emerson Review, December Magazine, and the Sun Magazine among many others. And of course his work became the cover of NUNUM's Summer 2018 issue.
Born in Illinois and raised in Tennessee, Ernest Williamson is now also a part of the NUNUM scene after his loose suggestive painting 'Doting Diana' got our eyes. This work merged with a satirical flash piece we got from CK Rose to become a feature in our Summer 2018 issue called 'A New Benchmark'.
Dr. Ernest Williamson III's work has appeared in over six hundred creative periodicals thus far and we couldn't be happier to have a slice of his commendable output included in NUNUM's Summer 2018 issue. If you are keen to get a peek at more of Ernest's work then jog on over to the New England Review, the Columbia ReviewRoanoke Review, the Columbia Review, Wisconsin Review or the William & Mary Review. Or just keep your peepers locked on our blog for our upcoming mini-feature of some of his other works.
NUNUM Summer 2018 is out of the cage and on the prowl. Turned into an issue about changes, the ones we see and maybe more potently the ones we don't. Tracy Pitts put a hound on our cover this time 'round just to remind what happens when we don't pay attention to these changes.
From our side we couldn't be happier with the issue. We have wonderful new POV's on odd isolated events that prompt our society into the forms it eventually ends up assuming. Come on in and meet Zoe, CK, Ernest, Dylan and Tracy.
